LGBTQI+ Networks

Our students have several options available to them when it comes to support groups and networks focusing on LGBTQI+ issues. These options do change, so if you see something is missing and would like to reccomend it, let us know at wellbeing@exeter.ac.uk.

University Networks

Exeter University LGBTQ+ is a Student Guild society dedicated to providing a secure space for those who identify as LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans (including non-binary), queer and questioning, as well as other identities such as asexual, intersex and genderqueer) to fully express their sexual orientation and/or gender identity without fear of intimidation or harassment. They promote a welcoming and inclusive space for students and organise social events throughout the year.

If you are a PGR student you can also join the LGBTQ+ Staff Network, which exists to offer staff a space to fully express their sexual orientation and/or gender identity without fear of intimidation or harassment. They run a number of events, including a monthly Coffee Morning and Pride on Campus.

The Intercom Trust

Intercom Trust is a lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans community resource in Cornwall, Devon, Dorset and the wider South West. They provide help against homophobic and transphobic prejudice, crime, and discrimination. They also help to develop LGBT communities, providing professional training and consultancy, and working in partnership with local government, the police, health and other organisations: 

External Support

There are a number of national and local organisations and help groups that can be invaluable for finding out information and accessing support. Self-help groups can be an excellent source of advice, strength and guidance for any problems that you may encounter. And, perhaps most importantly, they provide a space where you can be yourself. Here is a useful resource that you may find helpful.
